Our 6 Week Step 1 Program Offers:

One of the biggest challenges Step 1 students face is sorting through the wealth of information learned through the first two years of medical school and knowing how to integrate that into medical board questions.

The solution is IOMB”s Method©, that enables you to answer board questions using reasoning and critical thinking. It puts you in control of the questions and the questions stop controlling you. You will improve your efficiency at mastering USMLE (MD) and COMLEX (DO) style questions.

All our programs’ curriculums are designed by MDs, DOs, PhDs and Medical Education Learning Specialists. Our panel of experts collaborated to build a syllabus of high-yield content taught in a tactile-learning (no lectures) environment for long-term understanding of concepts.  It is this understanding (not memorizing) of content that assists students in the integration and critical thinking that is required when answering correctly 300+ questions on exam day.

These programs offer:

  • 35+ years of experience, we are the original “Kansas City” program
